Carnegie Mellon’s University Center, Rangos Ballroom is where all of our workshops will be held. The University Center has lots of restrooms for refreshing between events and is walking distance to numerous restaurants.
Accessibility: There are elevators in the parking garage and the building, but it is a bit of a walk between the two. There are accessible stalls in the bathrooms.
Parking: Unfortunately, the East Campus Garage at 5040 Forbes Ave is no longer free on weekends as in the past. It will cost $11 with no in and out privileges.
However, there is a free lot (Morewood Lot) 1048 Morewood Ave Pgh PA 15213 between Morewood Gardens and Stever House. Note: you cannot see the lot from Morewood Ave so it’s easy to miss. You must turn into a driveway that will lead you down to the lot. It is free after 5pm on Friday and free for the weekend. Then just walk to the end of the lot on the left and walk down to Forbes Ave, cross the street, and make a left-on Forbes to the University Center entrance on the right. Rangos Ballroom is on the second floor.
Also, you can park on Beeler St. which is just off Forbes Ave across from the end of the East Campus Garage. Parking is free after 7pm on Friday and all weekend. This is a residential area. Walk down to Forbes and down to the University Center.
